Alterac Valley – 17 Minutes
It’s fun to get into a battleground, especially AV, in just a few minutes. The wait on Eitrigg for Alterac Valley was often an hour or more before the 1.12 release. But what’s up with the battle only lasting 15 or 20 minutes? OK, sometimes it’s 40 minutes or even and hour, but Alterac Valley used to be a long, almost epic battle.
Truth is, I used to complain about the long battles, too. It was hard, sometimes, to get people off defense. It was a grind. It took hours.
Maybe I’m just seeing different strategies. It does seem everyone rushes to offense now, with the D left to the NPCs. The coordination and teamwork is better for sure.
So is everyone else seeing this? What’s different? Is it just both sides rushing to offense? Is there something else I’m missing?
